Please follow these guidelines to ensure you submit the correct file to us and avoid any delays with your order.
Your artwork should ideally adhere to the following guidelines:
- High resolution, vector-based graphics (.ai, .pdf, .eps, .psd)
- Single color (B/W), print-ready file
- Avoid drop shadows or gradients
- Text should ideally be no less than 6pt
- Minimum stroke width of at least 0.5pt
- Convert text to outlines
For reference, the BLACK areas of your image will be the engraving (i.e the parts of the ice that are raised when stamped). You do not need to flip your image, how it looks in your file is how it will look on the ice.
If you would like to do text or initials, simply create a word doc (in MS Word, Google Docs, etc.) and choose your font and text and save the file as a .PDF. If you upload this to us when you order we can make it into a stamp.
After you have placed your order we may* send you a proof to confirm that the attached image is exactly as supplied. Once the artwork file has been approved we will begin the preparation process for engraving your image.
If you have a scanned drawing or a file in a different format, we can convert it into vector artwork for you! Anything from a signature to a simple sketch. You may also wish to use this service if your image does not quite meet the requirements above. If you would like to use this service, please select "Convert to Image File to Engrave-able Format" when you add the Custom Ice Stamp to your cart.
*Please note: If we review your design and are able to convert it without any modifications, we will bypass the proof process and move straight to production.
